Overview

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see.

We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.
I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests.

Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.

What to Expect

You can see one of the most beautiful night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay.

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see.

Please choose the spots of your interest and let me know.

East Gardens of the Imperial Palace will take approximately one hour and a half or so.
Asakusa will take more than an hour if you would shop there, too. Tokyo Sky Tree will take more than an hour.
Meiju Jingu Shrine will take approximately one hour.

For shopping, Takeshita Street in Harajuku is mainly aimed for teenagers, Ginza has one of the biggest UNIQLO shop, Nissan Crossing and Ginza Six,which has an excellent Art book store, and Nihonbashi is the place for the mature that locals will also do shopping with high quality items, not the cheap tourist goods.

For typical tourist souvenirs, you can get them at places like Asakusa, Tokyo Tower, Solamachi: Skytree town and Akihabara.

About observatory, I will try to include some free ones near the spots we will visit.

Tokyo Sky Tree is 634m high, but a little bit distant from the Center of Tokyo and surrounded by lower buildings, so you might find Tokyo Tower (333m) or Tokyo City View in Roppongi more satisfactory to see the Contemporary Tokyo.

If you're interested in roses, I could take you a park (admission free) with beautiful ones.
If you prefer to see streets with good ol' days atmosphere of Japan, please tell me.

(If you're interested in cherry blossoms which blooms during winter, we can see them at the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, Hibiya Street, huge Shinjuku Gyoen Gardens, and Ueno Park.)

Highlights

  • The spots you would like to visit
  • The night view of Rainbow Bridge (Optional)

Important

DURING APRIL, it will be first booked, first served basis.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you're interested in NIKKO, MOUNT FUJI or TOKYO, please check the tours before you make inquiries.

It's impossible to make quotation without knowing the spots you would like to visit.
Nikko and Mount Fuji are approximately two hours on Limited Express from Shinjuku or Asakusa.
Tokyo is not a compact city, but a huge one.

If you have difficulties with stairs, please tell me in your message. Thank you.

The sightseeing spots are scattered around the big City of Tokyo, e.g. from Asakusa to Meiji Shrine would take approximately forty-five minutes.
I will do my best to visit all the places you request, however maybe we could only visit three or so places a day.
Shopping spots might take much more time, because there are quite crowded and shopping usually takes time.

We will basically use Tokyo Metro One day Ticket ¥600, but if you have JR Pass or would like to see the City itself from the train, we will use JR, too, if you would like to. Asakusa, however, is not close to any JR station but only Metro Subway station.

We are supposed to WALK A LOT, so PLEASE WEAR WALKING SHOES.
Highheels or sandals might give you a hard time. There is no cab services in the Japanese Gardens or Ueno Park :-)

Or if you don't want to, please make sure to tell me so, but Meiji Jingu Shrine would be an hour walk at least, anyway.

East Gardens will be closed on Mondays and Fridays and the Tokyo National Museum will be closed on Mondays except National Holidays.

There is BAGGAGE INSPECTION at the entrances of East Gardens and the Observatory of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

Please let me know the places that you would like to visit and what you're interested in, so I could include places matching your interest. read more

“ I had a 10 hour layover in Tokyo and Yoko took me to the cherry blossoms and a bit of Tokyo ”

Yoko was great a communicating with me before my arrival and she was right on time to meet me at Keisei Ueno station. We only had about 4 and a half hours together and we did a whirlwind tour of the East Gardens and Asakusa Temple. Yoko was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She helped me make the most of the time I had available.

Yoko:

I appreciate your great review, Ms. Kobuke. It was a great pleasure for me to enjoy the Sakuras with you on such a beautiful day. I had a lot of fun talking with you and hearing your interesting stories. I will be waiting for you coming next time soon with your daughters. Thank you again for everything.^_^

“ Tokyo Trip ”

Fantastically knowledgeable guide. She knows her work and her clients. Kept us actively involved in all the activities. She is bubbly, fun and helpful. Our kids aged 19 and 12 enjoyed her company. We only spent a day with her but she guided usdor the rest of our stay. Definitely recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.

Yoko:

Thank you so much for a wonderful review, sir. I had a great time with you and your family: I enjoyed talking a lot with your beautiful and intelligent wife Rashmie and your amazing kids. I also appreciate Rashmie reacting quite well to what I said, which made every explanation easier for me. I hope you would enjoy the rest of your journey through Japan and wish to see you and your family soon again. Have fun, sir!!

“ Highly competent guide ”

It is obvious how well Yoko knows Tokyo when one spends a day with her. She guided us safely and efficiently through the transportation system, allowing us to see more than we thought possible in a day. She provided interesting information about the sites, and paid attention to our interests when choosing where to go. Yoko planned our time around mobility challenges my husband faces, and handled an emergency quickly and professionally, adapting our plans to accommodate. She went beyond what was required to be sure we enjoyed our time, and continued to be of assistance even after our tour was complete. I highly recommend Yoko.

Yoko:

I appreciate your excellent review so much, Sandra. It was a great pleasure meeting you even though I couldn't laugh to Mike's jokes as you could. It was very nice of your daughter and husband planned the trip to Japan as a birthday surprise and I'm very glad that I could help you enjoy the most beautiful season of Sakura. You're so cheerful that I enjoy being with you. I hope you could enjoy the rest of your trip. Thank you again, Yoko
